  comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-input's value is 
  this

  Documentation:
  *Controls whether input to interpreter causes window to scroll.
  If nil, then do not scroll.  If t or `all', scroll all windows showing buffer.
  If `this', scroll only the selected window.

  The default is nil.

  See `comint-preinput-scroll-to-bottom'.  This variable is buffer-local.

  You can customize this variable.
